Nursing - Educational Leadership (Ph.D.)

This Nursing Educational Leadership is a fifty-nine credit program of study for the preparation of nurses with expertise in the professorial role.  The program is comprised of twenty-one courses leading the graduate to be competent as a scholar, educator and clinician.  It is a four-year program plan of study geared to the three perspectives of the professorial role: expert researcher, academic leader and accomplished clinician (NLN, 2006). Core values support the respect for and implementation of a curriculum addressing care, diversity, ethics, excellence, holism, integrity and patient/client-centeredness. Both the didactic and clinical components of the program foster the integration of concepts sustaining nursing's context and environment, quality, safety, relationship­ centered care, interdisciplinary teamwork and the multidimensional development of the nursing educational leader (NLN, 2010, AACN 2006)..
